Personal simulation refers to the practice of simulating (perhaps a better word can be found) one or more individual people within a virtual environment, i.e. on a computer. This is not yet an urgent ethical issue as computing technology has not yet advanced to the point where this is possible, but it seems highly likely to become possible within the next few decades, and considerable thought is already being expended on it.
